Blackmore: Diamond Jubilee Flypast

A matter of minutes ago over Blackmore. 

I asked someone to confirm what the 'planes were. 

"That is an easy one, it is the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight on their way to the jubilee fly past. 

"The aircraft are (from top left to bottom right) a spitfire, a spitfire, a hurricane, a Lancaster  and another 2 spitfires.  The Lancaster is obviously the larger one. You can tell the spitfires from the hurricane as the former have elliptical wings whereas the latter are longer and thinner with squarer ends."
